Mil Irish Pot Still Gin
Mil is an Irish pot still gin distilled with fragrant Mediterranean botanicals and bursting with southern sunshine.
The small-batch gin is distilled with almond, basil, bergamot orange, gooseberry, juniper, olives, orris, rosemary and thyme.
On the nose, it has summer fresh citrus and subtle herb notes of basil, thyme, rosemary and piney juniper. The taste is fresh bittersweet with a clean citrus finish.
Míl Gin was created by a team of adventurous ginthusiasts from the Pearse Lyons Distillery, which is located in the historic St. James Church in Dublin.
Inspired by the warm golden light from the stain glass window which depicts the Camino de Santiago in Northwest Spain, (where tradition has it St. James is buried), they began exploring recipes for an Iberian-Irish fusion gin.
This voyage of discovery led them to Míl, the mythical Spanish warrior whose descendants populated the land. The sons of Míl were said to have brought the warm sun to Ireland. Míl Gin captures the essence of this expedition, using pure Irish gin with the taste of the sunny Iberian peninsula.
Mil Gin is a pure spirit infused with zesty, fragrant southern sunshine.
